Well, not sure I would like to be still here at 109!
But this Guy is 109 and still drives, smokes, lives in his house.
And has a lady friend.
Bought his house in 1946 after returning from war and still lives in it. He lived a simple life .

Nice story,

Pete

He's now 111 years old, and no longer drives:

I was hoping he'd have a favourite radio from back when.

Thank you Pete,

Not sure why, but I sat through that with tears of joy, and I intend to send it to everyone I can.

Cheers,

G.

Your welcome.
I like the story too,
I think the key to it is Humble.
Humble ways in life.
